Kresge Arts in Detroit says 16 artists and two groups have received film and music fellowships and live arts fellowships. Each fellowship comes with an unrestricted $25,000 prize and a year of professional practice support.
Four artists also have received Gilda Awards and $5,000 each to foster their work.
The Gilda Award is named after the late Gilda Snowden, a professor in the College for Creative Studies and 2009 Kresge Artist fellow.
Recipients will be honored during a July 12 program.
